Promotion and release[edit]

Prior to the album's release, three songs were leaked onto the Internet: second single "Same Girl", which features Usher; "Rise Up", a song which only appeared on some releases, a tribute to the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre in April ; also making an early appearance was a song titled "Blow It Up", at first supposed to be featured on the album but absent from the final track listing, mainly due to the inappropriate mood it would have created because of the presence of the Virginia Tech shooting tribute song "Rise Up". "Rock Star", which features Ludacris and Kid Rock, was released as the album's third single on September 4. A video for the song "Real Talk" was also made directly on YouTube. On May 25, , four days before the album's release, the explicit version of the album became available for purchase on iTunes.

  • There are different iTunes versions of Double Up. Some features the track "Ringtone", as track 20; instead of [12] Other versions have "I Like Love" or the video for "I'm a Flirt" as bonus features.
  • On all versions (digital and CD) of Double Up, "I'm a Flirt" is presented in its censored form while the other songs are not.
  • On most international versions of the album, the song "Rise Up" is omitted in favor of the aforementioned bonus tracks. The song "Rise Up" was reportedly intended predominantly for North American listeners because it is about the Virginia Tech massacre, something that some non-North American fans of R. Kelly may be unfamiliar with.
  • The extended version of the song "Get Dirty" with an extended verse by Chamillionaire was released on R. Kelly's MySpace page.
  • The new intro to the song "I'm a Flirt (Remix)" was released, only featuring an additional 10 seconds of music before the actual song. The only evidence of this was found on YouTube.[13] The video is no longer available because the YouTube account which uploaded the video has been deleted.
